Why Choose this Training Course?
The objective of this training course is to get more out of seismic and well data through the use of sequence and seismic stratigraphy and integrated stratigraphic analysis to further constrain geological models. Ultimately, it can be used to predict and discover more hydrocarbon plays, to improve the estimation of play and prospect risk and to determine what lithology is going to be drilled ahead of the drill bit.
This 5-day interactive Stratigraphy training course will deal with the fundamentals and practical applications of sequence and seismic stratigraphy. It will include exercises and case histories for some interpretation and workshop discussion.
This training course will feature:
- The history of sequence stratigraphy
- The models and principles of seismic and sequence stratigraphy
- Controls on basin stratigraphy
- Sequence definition from wells and seismic
- The fundamentals of sequence stratigraphy in carbonate systems
- Relative sea level lowstands and reservoir development
- Sequence stratigraphy in lacustrine environments
- Integration of other stratigraphic information, biostratigraphical, radiometric dating, chemostratigraphical
What are the Goals?
By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the critical use of chronostratigraphy in providing a temporal and spatial display of depositional packages
- Have a full understanding of sedimentary basin types and their depositional patterns
- Identify the main sequences on seismic
- Integrate other geological data and then identify sequences and parasequences on well logs
- Have awareness with the terms and definitions used in sequence and seismic stratigraphy
- Use sequence and seismic stratigraphy towards new play definition and as an aid in play and prospect risking
Who is this Training Course for?
This PetroKnowledge training course is suitable for exploration and development geologists, seismic interpreters, sedimentologists, petrographers and other upstream subsurface professionals who are interested in optimally utilizing geological data as a predictive tool in sedimentary basins and for identifying hydrocarbon plays in active petroleum systems.
How will this Training Course be Presented?
The training course will be based around PowerPoint presentations for each module followed by interactive and participative individual and team exercises. There will also be workshop sessions based around real exploration and development case studies to get participants to actively become aware of the predictive capabilities of applied sequence and seismic stratigraphy and how to integrate other stratigraphical data. Course participants are also encouraged to bring along stratigraphic data, logs and seismic where appropriate from their own companies so that real working examples can be reviewed and interpreted.
